It’s probably a little indulgent, but there’s nothing more fun when someone gets engaged to see how decadently valuable the engagement ring is, even more so when the recipients have the budget of a high-profile millionaire celebrity. As an entertaining little side adventure, since they’ve had a spouse in common, who had the best engagement ring between Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively?
Between Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively’s engagement rings, Lively’s ring is superior to any of Johansson’s from a monetary value point of view. Lively’s engagement ring is estimated to be worth somewhere around $2 million.
Naturally, the question of which ring is best comes down to taste. Jewelry is a deeply personal item, and you’ll never get any real consensus on what looks better between two equally elegant pieces.
Monetary value is the coldest, truest measurement that we can go with, but we can also have a look at the public opinion of both casual observers and jewelry experts.
Johansson’s Sparkling Trio
Taking a look at some of the dazzling diamonds on these painstakingly put-together pieces, you’d feel lucky enough if you’d ever had the good fortune of owning even one of them. For one of the lucky ladies under examination, however, she’s had three of these spectacular rings added to her collection.
Johansson has had three engagements, and each time her ring finger has been blessed with tens of thousands of dollars worth of silver, gold, and diamond. The first of those rings was courtesy of the man that she and Lively have both had the pleasure of having involved in their lives.
In the case of Johansson, the wedding to Reynolds was over in a flash, but she did get a beautiful gold band decorated with an expensive-looking diamond to commemorate the blink-and-you-miss-it relationship. The ring had a classic look and was definitely the simplest of Johnasson’s three rings.
Her second marriage was to French journalist Romain Dauriac, lasting about the same amount of time as her first. More diamonds were on the horizon for Johansson with this engagement, three more, in fact.
The ring she received from Dauriac was a far more artistic-looking piece, with three diamonds striking an impressive image on the center of the silver ring. Johansson is notorious for enjoying her privacy, especially where her private life is concerned, but even she couldn’t keep such a gorgeous piece under wraps for long.
Her third engagement ring is no doubt the fan-favorite of the three. What is believed to be a James de Givenchy of Taffin ring, the brown diamond sits atop a stylishly curved and blackened band, cutting a far more unique style in comparison to her two previous engagement rings.
The cost of her third ring is estimated to be worth a cool half a million, making it the most expensive of the lineup as well as the best looking. A nice choice from her fiance Colin Jost!
Lively’s Lovely Adornment
Now we come to Lively’s engagement ring. In comparison to Johansson, she’s only got the one, but in this case, it’s definitely quality over quantity.
Weighing in with the values to start with, the ring that Ryan Reynolds put on Lively’s finger is estimated to be worth somewhere in the region of $2-3 million, an absolutely jaw-droppingly exorbitant value of the ring.
A perfectly fitting and slim pave band acts as the support to the centerpiece of the ring, a diamond with a slightly pink hue. Not only is it stunning to look at, but the rose coloring also gives it a unique look.
So, Which Is Better?
Well, as we’ve already covered, Lively definitely gets the better of the exchange if we weigh them based on the cash value. In fact, even if you stack up all three of Johansson’s rings, they still come short of the frankly unbelievable cost of Lively’s ring.
Purely going by the appearance of their rings, again Lively gets the better of Johansson when we constrain the competition to their shared engagement to Reynolds. Opening up the battle to include Johansson’s engagement ring with Jost, the decision gets a little trickier.
Whether you prefer the chic black band of Johansson’s engagement wonder or the ultra-rare high-quality pink diamond of Lively’s ring, it’s safe to say that both ladies get to wear something that leaves the rest of the population green with envy!
